FBI Hiring IT Staff

The FBI recently launched a recruitment campaign aimed at hiring a large number of Information Technology (IT) Professionals. These candidates will work with some of the most cutting-edge technology available in the world, to operate and maintain a robust, secure FBI global information technology (IT) infrastructure environment. 

The FBI is seeking highly competitive candidates to fill critical IT positions, including computer scientists, computer engineers, information technology specialists, and IT project managers. Salaries for these positions range from $35,452 - $135,136, based on experience and qualifications, with potential recruitment bonuses for those candidates who possess skills deemed most critical to the FBI. To expedite the hiring and interviewing process, special procedures will be in place to bring applicants onboard expeditiously, with interviews beginning in January 2006.

FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III said, “Joining the FBI technology team will be an exciting and rewarding career. FBI is dedicated to developing and implementing state-of-the-art information technology systems to support our agents and analysts working in the field. These IT positions are critical in support of this FBI’s mission to protect the United States against terrorism, foreign intelligence, criminal enterprises and cyber attacks.”

The FBI is strengthening systems engineering as this critical discipline is necessary to tie new systems together architecturally and ensure that newly identified standards are enforced. System engineers are needed to develop and operate in a test environment so that stress and other tests are run against new systems. Engineers are needed to transition new capability into an operations and maintenance environment.

Another critical area for the FBI is data warehousing and federated search. Warehousing has been very successful, yet enterprise extraction, translation, and loading processes must be fine tuned. Data engineers are needed to model legacy databases for federated search and participate in legacy transition planning.

Finally, the FBI is on a path to service oriented architecture. The services offered in the future will cross intelligence, administrative, and law enforcement lines of business. Application engineers and experts in portal technology will be needed to create this new environment. Many of these efforts are in their infancy and offer new personnel the opportunity to get in on the ground floor in systems development.

All interested personnel should immediately apply online at [url=][/url]. As a prerequisite for FBI employment, you must be a U.S. citizen and consent to a complete background investigation, drug test, and polygraph. Only those candidates determined to be best qualified will be contacted to proceed in the selection process.

Wal-Mart To Add 250 IT Jobs

By Julia King
Computer World
December 5, 2005

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will add 250 new IT jobs during the next year, filling the majority of the positions with NEW COLLEGE GRADUATES rather than experienced IT veterans. The retail giant also plans to promote about 25% of the IT personnel already on board. 

"We like the idea of bringing in strong, young minds,” Wal-Mart CIO and Executive Vice President Linda Dillman said this morning at the Forbes CIO Forum here. Most of the company’s current IT employees as well as the new hires work out of Wal-Mart’s Bentonville, Ark., headquarters, where salaries and housing costs are lower than in other parts of the country. Wal-Mart also wants to retain centralized control over IT, Dillman said.

Wal-Mart has tried, and largely rejected, IT outsourcing because it didn’t deliver as advertised. “We tried offshore development, and we weren’t very successful,” Dillman said. “We found that the hourly rate was less, but that it took more hours [to complete projects].”

Still, the company is in the process of developing what Dillman called “remote development centers” in Brazil and parts of central America where it has acquired other retail chain operations. “We want to take those associates and have them become remote development teams doing projects outside of the U.S. It will help us bring more of a global understanding to our [IT] development,” she said.

Asked what’s on her IT wish list, Dillman said her top priority is a tool for effectively managing e-mail. “E-mail overload is the biggest drain on an organization, and there aren’t effective tools out there,” she said.

Second on her list are tools for effectively managing Wal-Mart’s massive inventory of 3,000 servers in Bentonville as well as another 8,000 remote servers. “There is a lot of excess capacity, and we need tools to better manage it,” she said.

Dillman said she sees an expanding role for Wal-Mart’s dot-com arm. “We’ve changed our dot-com presence,” she said, explaining that what began as a way to sell products now functions more as a marketing arm for the retailer. Looking ahead, Dillman said she sees Wal-Mart using its Internet site to offer customers software-based tools to help them plan their in-store shopping visits, more closely manage their health care and prescription medication usage and purchases and do more research about products they’d like to buy at the store.

Wal-Mart is also working closely with several technology vendors to develop IT-enabled products and services, some of which will be used and/or sold by Wal-Mart exclusively—at least for an initial period. For example, Wal-Mart has worked with NCR Corp. to develop an ATM-like machine that enables users to get cash and money orders, pay their bills online and purchase phone cards. The machines are being rolled out to Wal-Mart’s chain of 3,500 stores now.

The retailer is also working with an undisclosed partner to test the idea of using Wal-Mart’s real estate to offer WiMax-based digital services.

Self-Employment Benefits

For millions of people across the United States, owning their own business is the ultimate American Dream. As Americans we want flexibility, leisure, and wealth. Owning a franchise can help you truly experience this utopia. 

Statistics compiled by the U.S. SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION and the DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE show a higher success rate for franchises than for other types of business start ups. When an entrepreneur buys into a franchise, he or she is literally buying into a franchising “family.” Experts attribute a higher success rate to the fact that franchisees buy not just a trademark and system of doing business but also the experience, expertise, and support of the franchisor and its other franchisees.

With the emergence of the Internet, entrepreneurs have a wealth of knowledge at their disposal about many types franchises. Successful entrepreneurs pick a franchise that fit their interest and experience. Of course, the first step in finding a franchise is conducting a search.
